The U.S. Committee on Credible Practice of Modeling and Simulation in Healthcare has recently published an article on the Journal of Translational Medicine that defines the "Ten Rules" that codify best practices for credible practice.
The adoption of modeling and simulations into clinical care and healthcare policy relies on successfully establishing and conveying their credibility to diverse stakeholders. This is a challenging task due to the fragmented ecosystem of biomedical simulation and diverse workflows among different biomedical disciplines. Drawing on input from many stakeholders, the Committee on Credible Practice of Modeling and Simulation in Healthcare, an interdisciplinary group seeded from a U.S. interagency initiative, has established and published Ten Rules that codify best practices for credible practice. These rules establish a unified conceptual framework for modeling and simulation design, implementation, evaluation, dissemination and usage across the modeling and simulation life-cycle.
